It all started with Bedford Volunteer fire department My Family and I lived there and My father and 2 out 3 brothers volunteered for the department. believe me I remember the night of being woken by beepers and then the them running out of the house to the call. And I am sure there is a picture of the department with all three of in. Volunteering turning into careers One is a trainer and is a logistics officer.
I have piece of mind that if I involved in a accident as I recently was I had the reaisurance that I looked up and saw the fire truck and said could someone please dispatch my brother and the next thing I knew I was talking to him on the phone. It helped to have the connectiion. And I do have to say I am very thankful for the amount of begreifment leave they were given
nine years ago when unfortunately our mother was ill with cancer and they were able to take off as much time as they needed too which was good because we only had 6 months between dianosis and her passing.
Signed with love a very proud
